Celebrating with a Party Animal Suite Project to Thank You All

Hi Everyone

We had an overwhelming response with the Hexagonal Base Pop Up card using the Window Shopping Bundle and we wanted to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to all that liked, commented and watched our video. 

We also got voted in the Top Ten at Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights - Whoop whoop!!! How exciting to be hopping with Kylie and the rest of the Top Ten in March which we couldn't have done without you, so...


Check out Kylie's blog post to see who else are in the Top Ten - http://bit.ly/2llvvky


With that in mind, it's time to celebrate and what better way than to share a Hexagonal Base Pop Up card from our Party Animal Suite display!




This is the first Hexagonal Base Pop Up card we made. You too can create this project with the Balloon Adventures Bundle - 144708 which is available from our Online Shop along with all current Stampin' Up!® products. Click on any of the Item Codes throughout the blog to be taken to that specific product page for more information.



For the base:
Start with Emerald Envy card measuring 16cm x 10.5cm (6⅜" x 4")
Place Portrait on Score Board - Score at 3cm & 7.5cm (1⅛" & 2⅞")
Turn 90° - Score on top section at 1cm, 6cm & 11cm which will create your Panels (⅜", 2⅜" & 4⅜")
Score bottom section at 3.5cm & 13.5cm which will be your Topper Support (1⅜" & 5⅜)
Do the same for a 2nd card and cut excess areas as shown in the diagram below



Bone fold all score lines and place both cards back to back
Join using the 1cm x 3cm tabs (⅜" x 1⅛")
Feed the 'Base' and 'Topper Support' sections inside
Adhere 'Topper Support' from both cards only




It's not as complicated as it looks but alternatively you can use the Window Box Thinlits Dies - 142762 and follow our video to easily make the base.



As you can see, I cut out the top frame of the Pop Up die cut and added even more balloons using the same die as well as the Balloon Bouquet Punch - 140609 for the topper. I also die cut 4 more in Emerald Envy and snipped into them to decorate the side panels.

What I love about this project is that you can send it as a card OR it can also be a table decoration at your own party. The base is big enough to hold treats inside and even battery operated tealights!
